Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego says
4-7 PM Exhibition Opening
5-6 PM Conversation with artist Kim Garcia and Student Participants

Through the Exploring Engagement grant awarded by Irvine Foundation, MCASD developed Millennial Engagement, an innovative initiative that seeks to expand arts engagement for ethnically diverse college and university students in San Diego by inviting them to collaborate with local, millennial artists. MCASD is presenting two showcase events to share these projects with the public, including this event at the Mesa College Art Gallery.

Something We Don’t Know is the result of a partnership between artist Kim Garcia and students in the San Diego Mesa College Museum Studies program. This project explores the relationship between artists, curators, and viewers as they negotiate the spaces intended for viewing works of art. The nature of these spaces frames the public’s understanding of and relation to works of art on view.

Garcia invited the Mesa College Museum Studies students to visit MCASD and further explore these exchanges with Education Curator Cris Scorza and Registrar Tom Callas. The students were asked to select several works from the permanent collection and generate projects that respond to the acts of curation, replication, interpretation, and application. These projects will be presented in the culminating exhibition, Something We Don’t Know.

This event is taking place concurrently with the San Diego Mesa College Fall 2016 Student Exhibition and Art Sale. The exhibition will include an exciting and masterful collection of class projects in various media, and students will be selling one-of-a-kind artwork, ceramics and jewelry.
